  • The Music by the Sea series presents its 16th season in 2018, with concerts beginning on May 16, 2018, and continuing each Wednesday evening through September 12, 2018. This annual summer music and food celebration features local bands and performers paired with local restaurants to entertain visitors and promote St. Augustine Beach.

    This exciting concert series features a different delicious restaurant at each concert event along with a different local performer.
